Michelle Kahmeyer Gabbe, PhD
I started my working life in the hard sciences, and hold a
PhD in molecular genetics from the University of Tennessee.
Since realizing that people are far more than a bag of
biochemicals, I have been actively learning and practicing
bioenergetics techniques for more than a decade. A resident
of Hong Kong for 18 years, in 2012 I returned home to the
USA and spent 2 idyllic years in Kailua Kona village, on
Hawaii's Big Island. Currently I'm living in another beautiful
locale - Saint Augustine, Florida.
While living in Asia, I was blessed to be exposed to a smorgasbord of transformational techniques, including EFT, Tapas Acupressure Technique, professional coaching, NLP, Reconnective Healing, PSTEC, Yuen Method, Kinergetics, Reiki... and so much more!
EFT (meridian tapping / emotional freedom technique) is the main modality that I share in both one-on-one sessions, DIY classes and workshops. Sometimes my clients will choose to receive Ho'oponopono, an Akashic records reading, or other intuitive guidance.
Whatever the trouble, we look to identify core causes and co-strategize a way forward. I am not a licensed therapist, so this is not psychotherapy or psychiatry - for lack of a better description, I simply call it energy coaching. Meridian tapping, together with other approaches, typically offer tangible results in as little as one coaching session, and I also offer packages for those who are ready to transform and commit to a longer term program for change. If you are someone who can appreciate a caring, oftentimes humorous and irreverent, approach, we might make a good fit. I'm pleased to offer a 15-minute initial phone consult, free of charge. And, because I believe that humanity deserves a far more equitable financial system, I also offer sessions in exchange for goods (e.g. fresh produce, handicrafts) and services (e.g. haircuts, lawn care, legal advice). Everyone has something valuable to offer.
More About Meridian Tapping
Often called ‘emotional acupuncture’, meridian tapping addresses the mental, emotional and physical aspects of issues ranging from chronic pain, addiction and overeating, to patterns of stress and procrastination. The approaches learned in a session can be easily self-applied and continued at home. It worked so well for me, I went from suffering debilitating stage fright to happily working as a presentation skills trainer! I wrote this D.I.Y. Tapping Book so that others could clear public speaking fears and anxieties for themselves, too.
Because stress and anxiety are so commonplace nowadays, I focus my efforts on helping people find a place of calm, centered peace. Some of the challenges that my clients have had successful results with include:
- Nicotine Addiction (Smoking and Chewing)
- Athletic Performance Limitations
- Compulsive Eating, Binge-Eating and Resistance to Healthy Eating Habits
- Self Expression and Social Anxiety
- Allergies (Animal Dander, Chocolate, Seasonal Environmental)
- Cancer (Treatment Sickness, Fear of Death, Energy for Speedy Recovery, and Death or Recurrence Fears)
